About Me

I live with my partner in Tensta, Stockholm. I am currently pursuing bachelor's degree in Arabic and Middle Eastern and North African studies. I started studying some music theory this semester, which has been awesome. I play the piano, sing in a gospel choir, try to go to art exhibits and shows and do some asylum rights' activism in my spare time.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've slept on a lot of different couches, and had a lot of people sleeping on mine. Sometimes it's been through Couchsurfing, but not always. I have surfed using CS in Denmark, Italy, Greece, Turkey and Egypt!

Music, Movies, and Books

When it comes to films I enjoy musicals, documentaries and drama... My favorite authors of fiction are Jeanette Winterson and Zadie Smith. I also love children's books!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Canoeing and camping along rivers in the American Midwest and Southwest. Hiking mountains of Sweden and Norway! Ski-trips... Amazing social and environmental projects, social centers and squats in Western Europe. Hitchhiking Germany-Italy and then up to Sweden and travelling the land way from Sweden to Egypt.
